Ruatoki’s Stacey Fluhler is among a special group of players to have won a World Cup in both the Sevens and XVs game.
Having first made her debut for the Black Ferns in 2015, she went on to be selected in the highly competitive Sevens programme the following year, before linking back up with the Black Ferns for their successful 2017 World Cup campaign in Ireland.
She’s managed to juggle the demands of top level rugby with study, having completed a Bachelor of Sport and Leisure studies at Waikato University, where she was a Sir Edmund Hillary scholar.
Fluhler, who is known for her warm and bubbly personality, was chosen as one of the faces of World Rugby’s ‘Try and Stop Us’ campaign aimed at inspiring women’s participation around the globe.
A talented all round athlete, Fluhler has also represented New Zealand in touch rugby, and provincial level in netball, hockey and athletics.
